It's Not Too Late to Choose

It’s the 42nd anniversary of the tragic Supreme Court decision that, in essence, handed down the death penalty for millions of unborn American children. In fact, to date, nearly 58 million pregnancies have been terminated since the day of the infamous Roe v Wade verdict in our country alone. Close to 63 thousand babies have died in America since New Year’s Day 2015; an estimated 2 thousand will succumb today. You can see the appalling statistics for yourself—in real time—at USAbortionClock.org online. But there’s no way to truly quantify the loss from the prenatal terrorism we’ve tolerated in our nation for over 4 decades. Oh, sure: there were abortions before Roe v Wade, many of them. But when nothing less than the US Supreme Court gave an official thumbs-up to this industry of death, the numbers multiplied exponentially, and young people came to realize that our government now officially endorses the right of an American to terminate the life of an inconvenient, albeit innocent, human being. It was unconscionable then, and--what’s worse--it’s become just a way of life in our country today. And Father, I want to pray for the safety of those who are making their way to the March for Life in Washington today, and to local Rallies for Life across the Delaware Valley. May their witness be powerful and effective, as these peaceful activists represent Your heart before our lawmakers, their fellow citizens, and the press. May this be the first day of a CULTURE of life in America, where we will--one day--bring abortion to an end, not by force or legislation…but instead, by lifting the value of life so high that’s it’s value is undeniable to all men. Your Scripture says that You have set before us life and death, the blessing and the curse. You told Your people to choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants… how? By loving the LORD your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him.* May that be the cry of hearts this and every day, I pray, in Jesus’ Name…Amen!
